The competition is heating up in the third season of NBC's successful singing competition The Voice, but all good things must come to an end eventually. And for The Voice, that ending is coming this December. Rest assured, the series will be back next year for Season 4. But the third season will wrap up next month, and NBC will also be showing viewers one of the new series they have set to debut next year.
NBC announced today that The Voice's third season will end on Tuesday, December 18 with a two-hour finale. The singing competition's final performance episode is scheduled for Monday, December 17 at 8:00 p.m. and will run for an hour and a half. Then on Tuesday night at (9-11 p.m. ET) , the a winner will be crowned and awarded a recording contract.
In the final live performance phase of the competition, the top artists from each team will compete each week against each other during a live broadcast. The television audience will vote to save their favorite artists and the two artists with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week, no matter what team they are on. In the end, one will be named “The Voice” and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.
NBC is making the most of what is sure to be a big-ratings night on Monday by offering viewers an early look at one of the new series they're premiering during midseason. The presidential family sitcom 1600 Penn will air on Monday (12/17) after The Voice's final performance episode, filling in that extra half-hour at 9:30 p.m. The comedy stars Bill Pullman and Jenna Elfman as the President and First Lady respectively. Broadway's Josh Gad will play their trouble-making son. While the series takes place in the White House, it looks like it's more of a family comedy, that just happens to focus on the First family. Given the cast, I'm hopeful that this series will be a winner.
1600 Penn officially premieres Thursday, January 10 (9:30-10 p.m. ET) on NBC.
